I use amp and peds-only for ensemble stuff currently. Mostly because it's easy... (I'd go solo with the p-board adding the PCM80 and EDP though). The amp sounds bitchin'... It's a 2x10" open back combo with 2 6V6 power stage (about 15-20 watts) and a solid-state preamp... go figure... it sounds great up to a certain volume level... then it's just not enough. Can't handle a pounding drummer... It's also very light. The thing about my simple rig is there's a Z Vex Fuzz Probe and Lovetone Flanger in there... both of which can do amazing oscillating events, so there's plenty of fodder for going into the electronic nuthouse. I want a floor looper, but The Rang seems to be the only one I like at the moment. I had level and dynamic problems with the DL4 which weren't quite worth the attention. Full-Metal-Jacket solo stereo rig... 10sp rack with Crown CE1000 power amp; PCM80; EDP; Korg AM8000r; TC D-Two Delay; DBX Vocal Processor/Mic Pre (286?); TRS Patch Bay; Power conditioner... all into a Mackie 1202VLZ on a keyboard table stand... mixer outs to a FMR RNC Compressor back to the Crown. Speakers are a pair of Acme Sound Lo-B 1x10" 3-way speakers which double as my daw studio monitors. Miko Biffle - Miko.Biffle@asml.com "Running scared from all the usual distractions!"
